dick clark productions and NBC have announced that the 2021 Billboard Music Awards (BBMAs) will air live on Sunday, May 23 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on NBC.

The annual live broadcast showcases spectacular performances, unexpected collaborations, and the prestigious ICON Award, which honors record-breaking artists and their impact on music.

The 2020 Billboard Music Awards aired on October 14 from the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles hosted by Kelly Clarkson with performances by Post Malone, Demi Lovato, and an emotional performance by John Legend. The night also featured a multitude of iconic moments: Cher presented Garth Brooks with the elite Icon Award; rapper and social activist Killer Mike was the recipient of the inaugural Billboard Change Maker Award, which honors an artist or group that speaks truth to power through their music, celebrity, and community; and Post Malone swept the night, winning a total of nine awards.
